I am not a proponent of holographic principle, I believe the universe is infinite, one will start off and not come back to the same starting point , my question is how popular is the holographic principle? and why? Not that my views mean any thing. https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2017/01/170130083231.htm A UK, Canadian and Italian study has provided what researchers believe is the first observational evidence that our universe could be a vast and complex hologram. Theoretical physicists and astrophysicists, investigating irregularities in the cosmic microwave background (the 'afterglow' of the Big Bang), have found there is substantial evidence supporting a holographic explanation of the universe -- in fact, as much as there is for the traditional explanation of these irregularities using the theory of cosmic inflation. Thank you in advance.
